Diplo may be without Stitch on his first solo album since 2004, but there are plenty of lazers to go around. Just yesterday he released “Set It Off,” a raucous Moohmbaton beat from deep within the dancehall featuring Burlington-based DJ Lazerdisk Party Sex. Way back in December, Diplo said Express Yourself would be out “in a couple days,” which he must have meant in very relative terms. He’s finally announced the release of the six-cut EP for June 12th on Diplo’s own Mad Decent. Both the song and album represent a microcosm of Diplo’s widely diverse interests – from nuggets of chopped up beats to New Orleans bounce music and riddims. Express Yourself promises something for everyone.
